AAPM Practice Manager of the Year Awards

NOMINATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED OPEN FOR 2019

The AAPM Practice Manager of the Year awards program is the most prestigious event on the AAPM calendar. This award recognises and rewards a Practice Manager for their contributions to the profession of Practice Management.

The program is conducted throughout Australia with a state Practice Manager of the Year awarded, before culminating in the National Practice Manager of the Year award, which is announced at the National AAPM Conference.
